The field of radiochemistry is so broad and varied that there is no universally accepted definition for it; because radiochemistry is an interdisciplinary subject, with its origins springing from such diverse areas as physics, chemistry and biology. Together with its sister disciplines, nuclear physics and nuclear engineering, radiochemistry has contributed not only to numerous important basic discoveries in our knowledge of the nucleus and its parts, but also it has provided new insights to chemistry, physics, biology and medicine. This book provides an encyclopedic review of radiochemistry by major subject areas.The book describes the history of radiochemistry, the atomic composition of matter, nuclear radiation and decay, and guidance for operating and maintaining laboratory equipment.
